Problems With Google Earth Linux

Hi, it's me again with another question . So I just installed Google Earth Linux on my computer but when I open it, the splash screen shows up but then Ubuntu goes to the login screen.

P.S. I used the following code to install after I downloaded the .bin file:

$: ls
$: cd ./Desktop
$: sudo ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin

Aha. All I had to do was enable my NVIDIA driver!
